Originally a 19th-century preparatory school for girls, Science Hill Inn now schools patrons on fine southern cooking served inside a warm-hued dining room laden with chandeliers and white-linen-draped tables. Inside the bustling kitchen, chef Ellen McCarty—who once showcased her skills by cooking for Julia Child—pushes the culinary envelope, stamps it, and mails it to Tastytown with dishes such as grilled salmon topped with a cucumber-dill sauce, marinated chicken breast splashed with a pineapple salsa, and Carolina shrimp and grits. Desserts, such as brown-sugar pie and biscuit pudding slathered in bourbon sauce, can be enjoyed with glasses of wine to cap off meals.

Performances by live bands at select locations serve as a pleasant distraction from meals, unlike a judge with highfalutin ideas about not eating in court.

When a bell tolls across Shelbyville, stomachs rumble. Hungry diners who follow the chime find themselves at Bell House Restaurant, a stately, recently renovated pink house where the centuries-old bell?originally part of the city's firehouse?faithfully heralds lunch and dinner each day. Once guests are inside, owner Sue Andriot or one of her experienced hosts cheerfully leads them to seats in one of the cavernous manor's four dining rooms. Sue and her husband, Bob, designed the restaurant's interior themselves, drawing from years of decorating experience to transform the rooms into rustic, Tuscan-style dining halls, where vibrant paintings speckle the walls and vases of fresh flowers sit on every table.

Once seated, dinner guests nibble freshly baked bread and sip glasses of fine wine while the aromas of rosemary, lemon, and garlic waft around them. In the kitchen, Executive Chef Tracy Gibson folds fresh ingredients into savory pasta and fine French- and Italian-inspired specialties. She extends her culinary expertise to American favorites such as the Cajun blackened chicken and Henry Bain pork. Seasonal flavors characterize the dessert menu, with warm apple cake making an appearance in the fall and cheesecake making an appearance when the moon explodes each summer.
